This year, as a Christmas gift to each other, my boyfriend and I went dog sledding.
Just like a scene out of Eight Below I was picturing 8 super fluffy, cute and powerfully gentle huskies guiding us through snow covered, winding trails lined with aspens and shrubbery.
This isn’t quit how it went….
As you may have noticed in the picture, the dogs look like they are trying to kill each other. This is basically how they are when they aren’t running! They bark and jump and bark and jolt around like they’ve never been tied up before. But then when you get them running they shut up and do their job like champions.
Sledding was very romantic ❤ and I’d definitely recommend it as a ‘stock up on points’ date! The man and I were all snuggled into the sled, nice and cozy while we rode to the Great Divide in the picturesque Banff National Park.
Merry Christmas to us!
The Dogs (Cricket and Tom were my favs):
Salad & Prosha – Leaders, Bowser & Cricket – Point, Tom & Vinny – Team, Indie & Enki-Wheel.
